Open Enrollment

EDGE: Women at the Pittsburgh Technology Council:


As mid-career female leaders, we often feel alone. The reality is that many of us struggle with the same challenges, but we solve them in isolation. We need a vehicle through which to share best practices across companies and industries and learn together in our collective experience. 

Powered by PEERS.

After years of success connecting peers together inside of large organizations, we launched EDGE as an open-enrollment program in 2015. EDGE was the first women’s group coaching experience of its kind targeting mid-career professionals and has both a 2 day retreat option in August (available in person and virtually) and a 9 month cohort experience that launches each year in January. 

The EDGE: Women 9 month program is offered in partnership with the Pgh Tech Council each January. Find out about our upcoming programming for this year here: Click Here 

Designed for high-potential mid-career professionals, our EDGE Experience is the first women’s mentoring experience of its kind. Unlike many “out-of-the-box” women’s leadership programs, our EDGE participants co-create the leadership content to ensure it delivers exactly what they need – NOW! – to grow and progress in their career.
